Starcraft’s MDX deck-boat series is well-represented in the MDX 231 E OB, powered by Evinrude’s E-Tec G2 200 hp two-stroke outboard. The result is a stout performance combo; our tester reached 47 mph with two aboard and three-quarters tank of fuel. Fuel-wise, best cruise speed was at just under 26 mph, where the E-Tec drew 5.7 gph and 3.9 mpg. For tubers and wakeboarders, no worries about the Starcraft’s performance; this combo punches hard from a dead idle, reaching 30 mph in 7 seconds. With the MDX, you get a runabout ride combined with a pontoon layout.
